Learn more about the story behind the 519 brand
Five One Nine represents more than just a brand, it's a symbol of where you're from. Being born and raised in the 519, we are truly proud of our roots, and wanted to represent this in our brand by offering high quality products that you can be proud of wearing!
Founded by university students in 2017, we saw first hand how many people our age were dealing with mental health issues. Therefore, we set out to not only represent all the great things that being from the 519 stands for, but also make a difference in the community by donating 10% of our proceeds back to mental health initiatives at FEMAP.
"To offer products our customers are proud of wearing, while raising awareness for the ongoing battle with mental health."
FEMAP is a donor funded program helping older teens and young adults (age 16-25) with mood and/or anxiety symptoms. They provide a safe and confidential place for youth to get help early, before symptoms begin to disrupt lives.
However, with an increasing number of patients, their wait times have also increased to nearly 9 months.
Through our donations and raising awareness for mental health we hope to eliminate the wait period giving patients immediate access to the help they need.
